Background and ObjectiveKeloid is conventionally treated with intra-lesional (IL) triamcinolone, which is highly operator dependent and has its own adverse effects. Topical steroid and silicone dressings are a patient friendly and non-invasive treatment alternative. We therefore sought to determine the efficacy and safety of topical clobetasol propionate (Dermovate®) 0.05% cream under occlusion with Mepiform® silicone dressing compared to IL triamcinolone in the treatment of keloid.MethodsThis…

TLDR
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing in combination with potent topical steroids leads to significant therapeutic benefits in children with postburn hypertrophic scars.
Combined intralesional triamcinolone acetonide and platelet rich plasma versus intralesional triamcinolone acetonide alone in treatment of keloids
TLDR
Combining intralesional PRP with TA could yield cosmetically better outcomes in keloid treatment with lower incidence of TA-induced side effects especially atrophy and hypopigmentation.
Corticosteroid Injection Alone or Combined with Surgical Excision of Keloids versus Other Therapies Including Ionising Radiotherapy: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomised Controlled Trials
TLDR
More high-quality, large-scale RCTs are required to establish the effectiveness of corticosteroids and other therapies in keloid management, and the quality of evidence for most outcomes was moderate to high.
Treatment of Hypertrophic Scars Using Laser-Assisted Corticosteroid Versus Laser-Assisted 5-Fluorouracil Delivery
TLDR
As 5-fluorouracil was associated with fewer adverse events, these findings support the use of a nonsteroidal agent in the management of traumatic scars by laser-assisted therapy.
Management of Keloid Scars: Surgical Versus Medical Therapy
TLDR
This article provides a summary and review of the medical and the surgical options available in the literature for treating keloids and organized the data into monotherapy versus combined therapy.

TLDR
Development of more patient-reported outcome measures specific to keloids, especially those that incorporate both scar and quality of life assessments, may help refine the current understanding of keloid management.
[A new approach in the compression therapy of postoperative scars].
TLDR
The use of the prolonged plaster Contractubex in the near and distant period a good cosmetic and functional result in the formation of a postoperative scar was provided.
Disease Severity and Quality of Life Outcome Measurements in Patients With Keloids: A Systematic Review.
TLDR
There is wide variation in keloid outcome measures in the published literature and a standardized method of assessment should be implemented to reduce the disparities between studies and to better be able to compare the numerous treatment modalities.
Laser‐assisted topical steroid application versus steroid injection for treating keloids: A split side study
TLDR
The combinative use of ablative fractional laser therapy and occluded topical corticosteroid as a drug delivery method enhances therapeutic outcome of two efficient scar therapy modules into one simple synergistic module.

TLDR
It has been suggested that mini grafting is a proper treatment option for treating patients with stable vitiligo, by using a small size punch, that is less than 2mm.

A Randomized Controlled Trial of Hydrocolloid Dressing in the Treatment of Hypertrophic Scars and Keloids
TLDR
Evaluating a hydrocolloid dressing or moisturizer to keloids or hypertrophic scars resulted in symptomatic improvement, but no change in physical parameters.
Earlobe Keloids: A Pilot Study of the Efficacy of Keloidectomy with Core Fillet Flap and Adjuvant Intralesional Corticosteroids
TLDR
Keloidectomy with core fillet flap and adjuvant intralesional steroid therapy is an effective modality for the clinical management of earlobe keloids and should be considered for the treatment of this difficult condition.
Treatment response of keloidal and hypertrophic sternotomy scars: comparison among intralesional corticosteroid, 5-fluorouracil, and 585-nm flashlamp-pumped pulsed-dye laser treatments.
TLDR
Clinical improvement of keloidal and hypertrophic scars after treatment with intralesional corticosteroid alone or combined with 5-FU,5-FU alone, and PDL seemed comparable, with the exceptions of the incidence of adverse reactions, which were most common with intralsional cortICosteroid.

Surgical Excision and Immediate Postoperative Radiotherapy versus Cryotherapy and Intralesional Steroids in the Management of Keloids: A Prospective Clinical Trial
TLDR
This study showed that surgery plus immediate postoperative irradiation was an effective and relatively safe choice for treatment of keloids, and although cryotherapy combined with intralesional steroids was associated with more side effects and higher relapse rates, it could be a good choice for small and newly formed keloid.
Long-term outcome of intralesional injection of triamcinolone acetonide for the treatment of keloid scars in Asian patients
TLDR
Although the long-term outcome of injection of triamcinolone acetonide into keloid scars in Asian patients did not achieve as good results as other authors, it was safer because the author used a smaller dose of a steroid.
A Randomized Clinical Trial to Study the Effect of Silicone Gel Dressing and Pressure Therapy on Posttraumatic Hypertrophic Scars
TLDR
This randomized clinical trial has demonstrated the evidence of the effect of combined PG and gel intervention on posttraumatic HS and both the combined therapy group and the PG group showed significant improvement in scar thickness.
